1801 Draped Bust Dollar

The reported mintage for the 1801 Draped Bust Dollar (Buy on eBay) was 54,454 pieces. During the year, the Mint also struck pieces carrying the prior year date, a practice which was somewhat common during the era.

There are two known proof restrikes for this date, which utilize the first reverse die of the famous 1804 dollar. These restrikes are extremely valuable and would no doubt command a seven figure price if brought to market.
